Parker Breaks Records with Mooring Lines for Shell’s Prelude FLNG

Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has been awarded a contract by SBM Monaco for the supply of the wire rope sections within the mooring system for the Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project to be operated in Northwest Australia.

In May 2011, Royal Dutch Shell made the decision to start construction of Prelude, the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas project. With a length of 488m bow to stern, this FLNG facility will be the largest floating facility ever built.

The first site to use Shell’s FLNG will be the Prelude gas field, 200km off Australia’s north-west coast. The Prelude FLNG facility is expected to stay moored at location for 25 years. Parker’s Energy Products Division has been selected to supply the wire rope sections within the mooring system for this revolutionary facility, which will have the highest minimum breaking load of any steel wire mooring system component ever supplied.

Parker is proud to be part of this project which will be a game-changer in the energy industry.
